Wink DIY S-Type 4.0 Remove and Replace ~ Coolant Reservoir Tank FAQ

Hey team,
Itís just me Tdc again with another one of my How I did it threads, just incase anyone wants to know.

I was leaking coolant from the engine compartment, rear Ė on the driver side and determined it to be my coolant over flow tank. I ordered one up a new one and well hereís how it went, via picís..


Removed the windshield wipers, then I remove the plastic covers, then remove the hex screws.




Now, I removed the cross bar




Now with everything out of the way, I was free to remove the (3) hoses and the unit itself.








Here are all of the parts that were removed for this project




Here we have the side by side view



Ok the new one is going back in, the only problem here is fitting the bottom hose under and connecting it up.. small hands are deffetnly required, as I had my son (14) actually perform the final hookup.. With dadís observation and approval of course.. hahahaa..










Here we go team, everything is back together and we have no leaks..



The total cost for this project was $86.00 for the reservoir tank.
The total length of time spent on this project was 90 minutes


Thank you all for your time and have a great one everybody..

Tdc..

Hey tdc, thats a nice write up on the coolant reservoir change, thanks for sharing.
It'll be a nice add on to the FAQ section. One of the mods will no doubt sort this shortly.

Thanks TDC, I just did mine, here are some pictures of the faulty one, look how many cracks it does have, and mine was leaking from between the plastic unions.

My wipers were the most time consuming parts to remove due to old dirt, even with W40, finally the trick was to use standard "locking plyers", one side on top of the screw and the other on the bottom of the wiper and just push a little to create a locking pressure.

Thank you for your post, my issue in I still have no idea how to remove the lower hose, and is the other side of the hose connected to a mettl part?
I can move the tank up and down but I can't seem to find the way to remove

This is an old thread.

In my reply to your thread, I mentioned how to remove the lower hose from the heater pipe. Use a tool for removing the constant tension clamp and move it up the hose, then use a hose tool or pliers to loosen the hose and remove it along with the tank.

Replace the tank as it's most likely cracked like the ones shown in this thread.
